Americares, BD Advancing Community Health: Driving Quality Outcomes in Free and Charitable Clinics

Americares seeks to improve health outcomes at the population level by championing the safety net sector’s transition to a value-based health care delivery model. Our BD Advancing Community Health: Driving Quality Outcomes Program will support the implementation of national, evidence-based standards at the clinic level. Americares will select two free or charitable clinics to receive a total of $100,000 each to support obtaining NCQA recognition as a PCMH in year one. Quality improvement experts will help providers integrate behavioral health into primary care services, enabling them to offer holistic care to patients as part of this project.
